This is an incredibly exciting time to join Northern Stage: over the last three years we have expanded our artistic, participation and talent development activity, secured over £300k in capital donations towards the redevelopment of Stage 3, and attracted major investment from funders including Esmee Fairbairn and Clothworkers Foundation towards our work with economically disadvantaged and diverse communities. We are exploring innovative new models of creative engagement, and strive to be at the forefront of reimagining the possibilities of what a 21st century regional producing theatre can be. We are seeking a dynamic, effective and experienced fundraiser to play a key role in contributing to a thriving organisation with ambitious plans for the years ahead.
